Rod Laver Arena

Day Session

The day session on Rod Laver Arena opens with the Mixed Doubles final, with Aussie wildcards Jaimee Fourlis and Jason Kubler hoping to be the first Australians for 2022 holding up a Championship cup. They’ll face fifth seeds France’s Kristina Mladenovic and Croatia Ivan Dodig. Both teams have faced some tough opponents to get here, but we’re crossing out fingers for an Aussie win.

Then, the day session on Rod Laver Arena finishes with our first Men’s singles finalist through to the big show. Today, Italy’s Matteo Berrettini takes on Spain’s Rafael Nadal. Both men had very tough five-set quarterfinal battles in the heat, so they are entering today’s match on even ground in that respect. Nadal has the crowd and his looming Grand Slams record in his favour, but Berrettini is in fine form. This could easily be another five setter for the pair.

Night Session

The RLA night session sees our final Men’s Final contender chosen – this time, either crowd favourite Stefanos Tsitsipas or world number two Daniil Medvedev. The world number four grabbed his first straight sets win last round, looking like he is back to his best – form that he has been building to with every match this AO. His opponent came exceptionally close to losing his quarterfinals match but fought back from a match point down to clinch the win, so he’ll be full of confidence today. This will be another RLA epic, so get comfy.

WHAT'S HAPPENED AT THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN SO FAR:

DAY EIGHT:

Rod Laver Arena

Day Session

As round four in the singles competition comes to a close, the AO2022’s best are ready to fight it out for the final places in the quarterfinals, and there are some huge clashes primed for Rod Laver Arena.

World number 15 Simona Halep has conceded just 10 games so far in Melbourne and is riding an eight-match winning streak in 2022 after winning at Melbourne 1 two weeks ago. Her opponent, Alize Cornet will be looking to shake her confidence after she took out her second seed of the week on Saturday. The pair have not met on court since 2015 and are both in exceptional form. The winner will face either Danielle Collinsor Elise Mertens in the Quarters.

Our Aussie favourite is still going strong. Alex De Minaur has conceded just one set over three matches after a comfortable win on Saturday – but many have said his draw has been kind, and that ends today. World number 10 Jannik Sinner dropped the first set of his AO campaign on the weekend and has also been largely unscathed. Both players are the next generation of tennis champions, no doubt about it – but in today’s game of speed vs balance who will take victory?

Night Session

The winner of the De Minaur/Sinner clash will have to face whoever wins here next round. World number four Stefanos Tsitsipas has endured some tough matches so far at the Australian Open but he is playing himself into form and with every match he is stepping things up. This is the first time his opponent, Taylor Fritz has reached the round of 16, beating his fourth top ten player since October to get here. The scent of an upset is looming – five sets wouldn’t be a surprise.

World number two Aryna Sabalenka has had to fight back from a set down three times this Australian Open, but each time she has proved how strong her fight is – her serve is her greatest weapon, and if she can get it under control she should be near unstoppable. But Kaia Kanepi is through to the round of 16 for the first time, continuing to prove doubters wrong. It is too hard to call, but should be a great three set match. The winner faces either Swiatek or Cirstea in the Quarters

Margaret Court Arena

Today is the last day that Margaret Court Arena will be ticketed – before it is open to ground pass holders, so of course they’ve locked in some big clashes to celebrate.

Daniil Medvedev has looked absolutely unshakeable this Australian Open. The world number 2 is surely the favourite coming into the round of 26, looking to add another grand slam to last year’s US Open title. But today, Maxime Cressy will be looking to halt that. He has been impressive thus far, and is Kyrgios showed us anything in glimpses, a serve and volley game is just what you need to win points from Medvedev – something Cressy is becoming well known for. Cilic or Auger-Aliassime awaits the winner.

World number nine Iga Swiatek has conceded just 12 games across three straight-set wins so far, mirroring her run to the Roland-Garros title in 2020. Today she faces world number 38 Sorana Cirstea who has taken two shock wins so far – against 10th seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and 20th seed Petra Kvitova – and will be looking for a third.

John Cain Arena

John Cain Arena features a lovely mixed bag for you to sink your teeth into today.

Notably, Aussie double pair Dane Sweeny and Li Tu will take to the arena this morning, looking to continue their AO2022 campaign. Later in the day, world number 27 Marin Cilic looks to go one better after overcoming fifth seed Andrey Rublev on Saturday, reaching the round of 16 at a major for the first time since the Australian Open in 2020. World number nine Felix Auger-Aliassime has put on some entertaining, classy tennis so far, continuing on his way to be a future top-ranked player on tour. Should be an interesting match up for sure.

Other Key Match-Ups

Around the grounds there is still lots of action to soak up.

Kia Arena hosts Aussies Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell, taking on a the 13th seeds. Later in the day, Edben returns to the court, this time joining Sam Stosur in the second round of the mixed doubles, taking on Aussie duo Jaimee Fourlis and Jason Kubler.

There is lots of doubles tennis action across all the outside courts and arenas – including some huge wheelchair doubles matches, which launch into the semifinals today. You definitely want to head out to court 8 this evening for the quad wheelchair doubles semi featuring Dylan Alcott and Heath Davidson.

If you want to see the next generation of Aus Open champions, don’t miss another day of the junior boys and girls competition either.

DAY SIX:

Rod Laver Arena

Day Session

19-year-old Clara Tauson announced herself to the world stage with a huge first top 10 victory over in-form Anett Kontaveit in straight sets, now she comes up against world number 30 Danielle Collins who is still yet to drop a set. Collins has a lot more experience, but as she’s proved Tauson is good for an upset.

Frenchman Benoit Paire has been quite the surprise package at AO22. He has already slogged through two gruelling first rounds but with very little recent court time is playing some of his best tennis. World number four Stefanos Tsitsipas was tested last round, but a major is surely the next achievement to tick off his bucketlist. Paire has shown he can go the distance in long matches, so Tsitsipas will want to keep this one short.

Night Session

World number 83 Pablo Andujar has been playing some impressive tennis this open, and with major wins last season against Federer and Thiem, would have some confidence he can knock off some of the best. But those matches were on clay, and his opponent Alex De Minaur plays some of his best tennis at home. He’s the home favourite and he’ll have the crowd behind him, plus his speed looks unmatchable at the moment.

Margaret Court Arena

Day Session

World number 41 Marketa Vondrousova is yet to drop a set this campaign, following up a Silver Medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games. Today she takes the court against world number two Aryna Sabalenka who had to fight back from a set down for the second-successive match in Melbourne, however she is finding her form with every game. We’ve seen some big upsets already, and this could be anyone’s game.

In his second round clash with Aussie favourite Nick Kyrgios, Daniil Medvedev proved that even having the crowd against him cannot shake him and with a kinder draw leading to the finals than most other highly ranked players, the world number two should be feeling confident. But upsets are the flavour of Ao2022 and world number 57 Botic van de Zandschulp will be looking to do just that.

Night Session

World number nine Iga Swiatek has conceded just seven games so far at the Australian Open blasting through the draw in the same way she did to win at Roland-Garros in 2020. But former world number 10 Daria Kasatkina is in serious form in 2022, with just nine games conceded so far – this could be a big battle for both players and should go to three sets.

Fifth seed Andrey Rublev has so far coasted through two straightforward matches, although covid interrupted his preseason, the world number six has reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam four times including last season here so should bring some confidence to the court. Despite dropping a set last round, his opponent, world number 27 Marin Cilic has also come through AO2022 relatively unscathed. Both players are heavy ball-strikers, and if their history is anything to go by – strap yourself in for five sets.

John Cain Arena

As John Cain begins to wind down for the year, they’ve got some big matches locked in.

John Cain Arena kicks off with some Aussie doubles action, when home country pair Nicole Bradtke and Rennae Stubbs face Cara Black and Barbara Schett.

Later today, former world number one Simona Halep looks to continue her smooth run through AO2022. She comes up against world number 98 Danka Kovinic, who is sure to be brimming with confidence after knocking out Emma Raducanu last round. With Halep playing some of her best tennis, she is going to be very hard to shake.

World number 24 Dan Evans dismantled an out-of-sorts David Goffin for just seven games in round one before receiving a walkover to the third round so he’ll be feeling very fresh taking the court today. On the other hand, world number nine Felix Auger-Aliassime has to slog through his last round match, playing through four sets that were all pushed to tie-breaks. This match will come down to stamina and momentum – who has more?

Other Key Match-Ups

Kia Arena is putting on a show today. 19th seed Elise Mertens, the reigning women’s doubles champion here, takes on China’s Shuai Zhang before world number 18 Roberto Bautista Agut looks to continue his impressive 2021 start – beating six top ten players on his way to the AO. He faces world number 22 Taylor Fritz who has also found some incredible form of late, and should see a great oncourt battle.

Don’t leave Kia Arena just yet, because Daniel Taro is taking the court again – and after he blew Andy Murray away with the performance of his career, will be taking a huge confidence boost into his clash with world number 10 Jannik Sinner. The Italian has back-to-back straight sets wins, and will look for another today.

Around the other courts, we’ve got another huge schedule of doubles locked in. 1573 Arena might just be the place for it, with Aussie duo Matthew Ebden & Max Purcellfacing big hitter Juan Sebastian Cabal & Robert Farah before crowd favourite Sam Stosur takes the court in the mixed doubles alongside Matthew Ebden.

Then, later tonight, Aussie wildcard Christopher O’Connell will look to back up the match of his career – an incredible shock straight-sets victory over the 13th seed Diego Schwartzman – to continue his AO2022 run. He faces 24-year-old American Maxime Cressy is what is sure to be a nail-biter.

If you want to see the next generation of aus open champions don’t miss day one of the junior boys and girls singles either.

DAY FIVE:

Rod Laver Arena

Once we enter the third round, this is where the competition really starts to heat up – and Rod Laver Arena is serving up a huge dose of must watch tennis action on day five!

Day Session

Former world number one Victoria Azarenka dismissed a tough opponent in round two to make it just six games conceded so far at the Australian Open and is so far in fine form. 15th seed Elina Svitolina was in control of the deciding set before her opponent retired was in control of the deciding set before her opponent retired. Azarenka leads in their head-to-head 4-0 and looks to be on a mission to continue that streak.

Prodigious talent Carlos Alcaraz hasn’t dropped a set yet and his stunning run to the quarter-finals of the US Open on his debut last season is sure to fill him with confidence in Melbourne. He comes up against a very tough opponent in world number seven Matteo Berrettini who reached his first Grand Slam final last season, taking out back-to-back four set victories here. It’s too tough to call on paper – will likely stretch to four, if not five, sets.

Night Session

World number one Ash Barty is off to a ripper of a start, conceding just three games so far at the Australian Open – with two grand slam titles already under her belt, the Melbourne crowd are definitely urging her towards the AO title. She comes up against world number 33 Camila Giorgi, who has put on two strong performances so far, following searing form across the summer.

If the night couldn’t get any bigger after that game, world number five Rafael Nadal faces former world number eight Karen Khachanov. Khachanov dropped the opening set of his 2022 Australian Open campaign but has won the last six in a row, looking to better his quarter-final exit at last year’s Wimbeldon. Nadal is currently riding a five-match winning streak, and is sure to continue his journey to that record-breaking Grand Slam title.

Margaret Court Arena

Day Session

Margaret Court opens with some big matches, seeing both 21st seed Jessica Pegula and world number six Paula Badosataking the court in the opening two games of the morning. We’ve already seen some big upsets in the opening two rounds, and while both players are in form, don’t discount their opposition pulling off a win.

World number 29 Reilly Opelka is quietly getting business done so far at the Australian Open, with two straight sets victories and 41 aces in six sets so far. Today he faces world number 14 Denis Shapovalov who is coming off a tough-fought five set win. They are two of the best servers on tour and we predict a five-set slog.

Night Session

Former world number 21 Amanda Anisimova is definitely finding her way back to career best form after winning her second career title at Melbourne 2 two weeks ago. But now she meets reigning champion Naomi Osaka who has conceded just 10 games in Melbourne. This one is sure to be a nail-biter – expect it to go down to the wire.

John Cain Arena

John Cain opens with what is sure to be some entertaining doubles action. With Aussies making up three out of four players, expect a big crowd when Rinky Hijikata & Tristan Schoolkate take on John Peers & Filip Polasek.

The doubles action continues later in the day when Sam Stosur – who farewelled her 20-year solo tennis career yesterday – joins China’s Shuai Zhang to continue their Australian Open doubles mission.

Later tonight, world number three Alexander Zverev is set to continue his strong form thus far. Yet to drop a set, and knowing he has reached the semi-finals of every Grand Slam but Wimbledon, is sure to give him confidence. Former world number 39 Radu Albot is heading back to career best form with a really impressive second round straight-sets win. Now the two face off for only the second time.

Other Key Match-Ups

Kia Arena is sure to be an entertainment hotspot today. First world number 20 Gael Monfils – who is setting himself up to be an AO dark horse – takes on world number 19 Cristian Garin. The two should push each other, but here’s hoping Monfils pulls out his usual bag of tricks. Also today, Thanasi Kokkinakis & Nick Kyrgios take the court to continue their doubles competition. After bowing out in a tough-fought four-setter last night, Kyrgios is sure to be on a mission today.

Around the outdoor courts, the doubles action continues – with a lineup of Aussies taking the court in round two. Lizetter Cabrera & Priscilla Hon will take to 173 Arena before Jason Kubler & Chris O’Connell aim to make it two in a row.

DAY FOUR:

Rod Laver Arena

Day Session

Rod Laver Arena opens today with two huge clashes in the women’s draw – first world number 3 Garbiñe Muguruza takes on France’s Alizé Cornet, before the world number 2 Aryna Sabalenka faces China’s Xinyu Wang.

Muguruza – the 2020 Australian Open finalist and winner of the 2016 French Open and 2017 Wimbledon tournaments – eased through her first round clash, but Cornet is sure to be a worthy round 2 opponent. Sabalenka had a slightly harder battle in her first round clash, with Aussie Storm Sanders taking her to three sets, and Wang is a player on the rise. Watch this space.

The big clashes keep coming, with Aussie favourite Alex De Minaur set to take on Poland’s Kamil Majchrzak. After dropping the first set, the 32 seed breezed through of his round 1 clash but Majchrzak also made light work of his opponent. With the crowd on his side, the speedy Aussie will be heading in favourably.

Night Session

In terms of crowd excitement, this might just be the clash of the day. Fan favourite and entertainment machine Nick Kyrgios will head into the Rod Laver night session to face world number two Daniil Medvedev. Not on his favourite court and up against an opponent you don’t want to meet this early, on paper Kyrgios won’t be heading in the favourite – but we have all seen what he can do when he is on form.

Margaret Court Arena

Day Session

Sixth seed Anett Kontaveit took little time getting her promising Australian Open campaign underway with a straight-sets victory in round 1, but so did 19-year-old future star Clara Tauson. This will be a true test of Kontaveit’s credentials, with Tauson sure to break the top 20 this year. This is sure to be an exciting clash.

The day session continues with world number 4 Stefanos Tsitsipas facing Argentinian Sebastian Baez. Baez is set for a breakout year on the ATP circuit in 2022 but had to fight through five gruelling sets to kickstart his AO campaign. On the other hand, Tsitsipas breezed through his clash in straight sets, looking to be at his best.

Night Session

Reigning US Open Champion Emma Raducanu worked to silence some of her doubters in a highly entertaining three-set win in round 1. Now she comes up against world number 98 Danka Kovinic, who is looking to get through the second round of a major for the first time. Raducanu will need to pull out the same play to breeze through this match.

John Cain Arena

Over on the people’s court, we’ve got some big hitters to look forward to.

First up, seventh seed Iga Swiatek will take on Rebecca Peterson. Both players breezed through their opening rounds, only dropping three and five games respectively. With all the Grand Slam experience swinging Swiatek’s way, she will enter this match the comfortable favourite, but don’t expect Peterson to go down easily.

At night, the comeback kid Andy Murray continues his Australian Open revival, after taking out an emotional victory in round 1 on this same court. Now he faces Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel, who put in a solid performance to beat Chile’s Tomas Barrios Vera in straight sets in round 1. Murray is a five-time runner-up here in Melbourne and another win will see him return to the top 100 – but he’ll want to do it in easier fashion than he did in round 1.

Other Key Match-Ups

Long-time rivals and occasional doubles partners Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Sam Stosur will clash on KIA Arena today. While the Russia is at an all-time career high ranking of 11, Stosur is preparing to wrap up her singles career in her 20th AO. This one is sure to be full of emotions.

World number 50 Alejandro Davidovich Fokina earned a solid straight-sets victory over Aussie wildcard Alex Bolt in round 1, while world number nine Felix Auger-Aliassime had to fight back from 2-1 down. Now the pair face each other on Kia Arena in what could definitely be a lengthy Grand Slam match.

1573 Arena also hosts some big clashes today with 27 seed Danielle Collins and world number 18 Roberto Autista Agut both facing off in their round 2 clashes. While over on Court 3, Argentinian Diego Schwartzman faces off with Aussie wildcard Christopher O’Connell. If you’re looking to support some Aussie talent, there is a stacked round 1 double draw to look forward to, with teams including: Dane Sweeny & Li Tu, Kimberly Birrell & Charlotte Kempenaera-Pocz, Andrew Harris & Aleksandar Vukic, Luke Saville & John-Patrick Smith and Daria & Luke Saville. Take a wander through the outside courts today to catch as much of the action as possible.

DAY THREE:

Rod Laver Arena

Clear your schedule, because you’re going to want to make sure you’re at Rod Laver Arena right from the morning today.

Day Session

After an impressive round 1 win, where she only dropped a single game, world number 1 Ash Barty is second on the Rod Laver Arena schedule today. Her opponent, Lucia Bronzetti had to fight a little harder in her round 1 match, setting this up to be a great clash. If you thought Rod Laver Arena’s day session couldn’t get any bigger, next up on court is crowd favourite Rafael Nadal who made easy work of his round one clash. Today he faces Germany’s Yannick Hanfmann who triumphed in quite the upset over comeback kid Thanasi Kokkinakis.

Night Session

Thought the day session was stacked? Well, the night is just as jam-packed with two huge games on the schedule.

Japan’s Naomi Osaka has looked impressive this season, the four-time major champion undefeated in four matches and largely dominating rising star Camila Osorio in her first-round appearance at Rod Laver Arena. She faces world No.54, Madison Brengle who owns seven career wins over top-20 players – including four at Grand Slams – and arrives in the second round after beating former world No.21 Dayana Yastremska despite hitting just one winner.

World number 3 Alexander Zverev finished 2021 strongly with his second trophy at the ATP Finals and enjoyed a straight-sets win over compatriot Daniel Altmaier to open his AO 2022 campaign. He’ll be up against the crowd when he faces John Millman – and with his knack for pushing big names to the bring on home soul, including Roger Federer at AO2020, he’ll be using everything to his advantage.

Margaret Court Arena

Day Session

Some big names are set to take to Margaret Court this morning, with a schedule worth sitting down and getting comfortable for.

Word number 15 Elina Svitolina will be looking to take down her second consecutive French representative when she faces Harmony Tan this morning. Svitolina has the experience, but with Tan’s round one upset and recent form, this clash could go either way.

Then, world number 14 Canada’s Denis Shapovalov takes on Korea’s Soonwoo Kwon. Both players had to fight it our in their opening matches, Kwon pushed to five sets and Shapovalov to a fourth set tiebreak, so expect both players to push each other here.

World number 4 Barbora Krejcikova takes on China’s Xiyu Wang to wrap up the day session. The French Open champion is in stellar form, with Krejcikova narrowly losing the Sydney Tennis Classic final in a third-set tie-break, but don’t write off Wang just yet.

Night Session

Gael Monfils and Alexander Bublik is a match-up that promises plenty in the shot-making department. In addition to his big serve, Bublik has become famous for his propensity to hit cheeky underarm deliveries, but that should not surprise Monfils, who also plays a creative, unorthodox brand of tennis. Monfils is riding hight after winning the Adelaide International two weeks ago, but Bublik won their only career meeting in four sets at Roland Garros in 2020.

John Cain Arena

American Madison Keys and Romania’s Jaqueline Cristian could prove quite the underrated big clash. Keys proved her place, knocking out the Australian Open 2020 champion and world number 11 Sofia Kenin in straight sets, while Cristian is in career-best form.

World number 7 Matteo Berrettini will then take the court against America’s StefanKozlov. Already taking out one American in his first round clash, Berrettini will be looking for a double, while Kozlov took full advantage of his wildcard entry with a straight-sets victory over Jiri Vesely on his Grand Slam debut. The Wimbledon runner up is sure to go in a favourite.

Other Key Match-Ups

If you’ve got a ground pass in hand, the outside courts are serving up just as much action today.

KIA Arena will open with world number 24 Victoria Azarenka – looking for a third Australian Open title – taking on Jill Teichmann. The former world number 1 breezed through her first Melbourne Park win since 2016, but Teichmann came out all guns blazing in round 1 and is sure to bring the same today.

Then world number 19 Pablo Busta Carreno takes the court against Tallon Griekspoor after the Dutchman’s impressive round 1 win over Italian Fabio Fognini. Court 3

Over on Court 3 it is an Aussie day out. First up Aleksandar Vukic will face Radu Albot. Vukic reached his his first ATP Tour quarter-final in Adelaide and is sure to have the hometown crowd behind him.

Before that though, we’re sure to witness one of the most entertaining men’s doubles games in this year’s Australian Open when Alex Bolt and James McCabe face off against best mates Thanasi Kokkinakis and Nick Kyrgios. Get ready for big hits and even bigger laughts.

Court 5 also hosts some stellar round 1 doubles action – with Spain’s Marcel Granollers and Argentina’s Horacio Zeballos taking on Japan’s Yoshihito Nishiokaand Czech Jiri Vesely before the Aussie women take to the court when Taylah Prestonand Seone Mendez face French pair Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic.
